Netflix Releases Key Art and Trailer for ‘Mr. Sunshine,’ a New K-drama from the Creators of ‘Descendants of the Sun’ and ‘Goblin’

 

by Blog Feature // Starmometer


Netflix has released both key art and trailer for its latest Korean Original offering, the k-drama Mr. Sunshine, from writer Kim Eun-sook and director Lee Eung-bok, who previously worked together on the global hits Descendants of the Sun and Goblin.

Based in Shinmiyangyo, or the U.S. expedition to Korea in the late 19th century, Mr. Sunshine tells the story of a Korean boy born into a family of a house servant running away to board an American warship, later to return to his homeland as a U.S. marine officer. He ironically falls in love with an aristocrat’s daughter and discovers the dark scheme to colonize the country that he once ran away from.

 

Lee Byung-hun, who was Storm Shadow in the G.I. Joe series and Han Cho Bai in Red 2, takes on the role of U.S. marine officer Eugene Choi, while Kim Tae-ri, who came into the spotlight with The Handmaiden, will play the aristocrat’s daughter, Go Ae-sin. Yoo Yeon-seok, Kim Min-jung, and Byun Yo-han also join the cast playing key roles within the story.

 

The 24-episode series launches on Netflix on July 7.

Hi everyone :D Can I join this forum??  :phew: At first I didn't intend to watch this drama because of the writter KES. I have  nothing against her or anything but I feel always too much overwhelmed when watching her dramas for unknown reasons lol. I didn't like Heirs (I only watched for Kim Ji Won and Kim Woo Bin because they're my favs) but I liked DotS and Goblin. Even if they had flaws. But still her dramas are overwhelming, if that make sense ?
But actually I think I'll change my mind. I like Kim Tae Ri and Kim Min Jung and Byun Yo Han as actors. And here all the characters seems interesting.
I think I like Kudo Hina (Kim Min Jung) the most.  She seems like a lonely and sad, yet powerful woman. I feel like her Glory Hotel is gonna play a very important part in the drama. :D
Go Ae Shin next because she seems awesome and not easily impressioned by people. B)

And Kim Hee Sung next. He seems like such a tragic character. I already feel his pain :tears:

On June 29 (Friday) at 11:40 pm, a special episode "Mr. Sunshine: The Beginning of History" will be broadcast ahead of the first episode on July 7th. This special airing is expected to bring excitement to the audience with the interviews of the five leading actors including drama highlights featuring scenes of Lee Byung Hun, Kim Tae Ri, Yoo Yeon Seok, Kim Min Jung and Byun Yo Han. ( ~ could be the compilation of film-making footage, behind-the-scenes and interview videos that tvN took down from Youtube recently?)

I really like the Netflix trailer which hints at the potential love story between the leads. I sense it is going to be heartbreaking. 

 

Lee Byun Hun gives off a manly and macho but lonely vibe which is quite refreshing, compared to the trend in kdrama of casting younger actors or idols as male leads in the last few years.

 

The playboy like vagabond character of Kim Hee Sung played by Byun Yo Han also seems interesting and refreshing.

 

Last but not least, I am anticipating to watch Kim Tae Ri and Kim Min Jung play the female lead characters which on first look, seem to be strong, fiery but tragic at the same time.

I have a theory since Kim Ji Won and Jin Goo are appearing...

 

Maybe the characters that they are playing are Myung Ju and Dae Young in their past lives. Maybe they could be playing Eugene's parents and died when he was a child. But they got their happy ending in Descendants of the Sun:blush: !

Welcome :D. I also just decided to camp here a few days ago but it seems very quiet here. So few people watching this drama?

 

I am watching for Lee Byun Hun and Kim Min Jung originally but the characters play by Kim Tae Ri and Byun Yo Han also caught my attention as their characters seem very interesting from the trailers.

Hi everyone joining the forum! th_wave.gif It's really good to see more drama fans joining the thread. It's been a bit slow previously but now things are definitely heating up for MR.SUNSHINE. With just 6 days to go, the rising anticipation is undeniable indeed. Hopefully it will surpass the (higher-than-usual) expectation and more. Truthfully it's quite nerve-wrecking at times to talk, post and share about the drama for reason(s) that's been highlighted & scrutinized everywhere... the male lead, the age-gap, the script, forum rules etc but hopefully everything can be discussed positively once the drama starts next Saturday. Just next week! :lol: Not sure if there'll be live streaming like before.. since this will be on Netflix. Hope to share resources with everyone via PM. MR.SUNSHINE fighting, everyone take care!

Hopefully, once MR.SUNSHINE starts airing, the main drama cast would all be included in the rankings ~

I am watching for Lee Byun Hun and Kim Min Jung originally but the characters play by Kim Tae Ri and Byun Yo Han also caught my attention as their characters seem very interesting from the trailers.

I don't know but I think it's less popoular internationally than Goblin or DotS because both leads are more movies actors than little screen actors, and dramas are the most watched internationally... but still I believe the drama is well anticipated in S.Korea because all actors are amazing and loved there :D

Lee Byun Hun have such a powerful presence it's scary, he's good B) 
Kim Min Jung is my fav too ha ha :wub: I can't wait to see her fencing scenes!
Byun Yo Han character seems so interesting and BYH is doing that, everytime he attract people  with how he portrays his characters it's crazy :tears:
I think so too, the tailer did such a good job to put spotlight on all main characters I love it :D

I think Jiwon will make a cameo as (Kim Tae Ri) Ae Shin's mom. We see her carrying a baby in her arms (in the 14m trailer) but I think she'll die right away when Ae Shin is still a baby :bawling:

Because of this brilliant child actress as young Ae Shin... I'll be checking even if it's only for several episodes appearance.
